Hampton police release photos of bank robbery suspect
Police are looking for tips that will help them identify the man who masked his identity by wearing sunglasses, a hooded sweatshirt and baseball cap.
Police say a man believed to be in his 20s entered the bank, located at 40 High St., about 2:50 p.m. and passed a note to a teller demanding money. No weapon was shown. The suspect fled on foot to a municipal parking lot across the street then entered an alley leading out to Route 1, police said.
